Thankful Thursday {Link Up #9}

Thankful Thursday
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them." John F. Kennedy

What I'm Thankful For This Week:

~Made it home safely during the latest winter snow storm. I couldn't even make it up the drive way because it was covered in icy slush. I literally couldn't go forward & I couldn't stop when I was hitting my brakes & rolling backwards.  I was just thankful a car wasn't coming because I rolled right out in the middle of the road. 

~ Also thankful we got to leave to go home early from work before the snow storm him on Wednesday.  Poor Ricky - along with every one in town - sat for hours on the main highway.  I would have just died.

~Isaac was OK after getting a good knock in the head.  This is his 2nd run in during recess. & by 'run in' - I mean a literal RUN INTO something.  Kids are made rugged though & Isaac was fine after having to stick around the ER for awhile to make sure he was alright.  Whew.

~ Kroger Fuel Points. I don't know who thought of this idea, but I take advantage of it whenever I can.  Getting 30 cents off this time, it had me at $1.89 a gallon.  That makes me feel like I'm in my 20's again.... a long far past.

~ A cuddly dog.  Harvey is all about being hugged & loved on... & most importantly, held while he's sleeping.  I love that about him.

~ Warm Towels. During the cold winter, I love getting towels out of the dryer when I take a shower.  I think I need one of those Towel Warmers that I've seen at Bed Bath & Beyond.  Nothing better then a warm towel.

~ Finding cheap reading glasses.  I need to have at least 10 pairs so I can have them laying everywhere.

~ Our neighbors dogs.  I love having extra fur babies show up at my car door when I pull up from home to greet me.  I can never get enough doggie greetings.

~ Speaking of neighbors - I'm thankful for our sweet neighbors who sent us some wind chimes in memory of Michael.  They are so beautiful. Each chime has a poem about the ones angels we have in Heaven... so thoughtful, so beautiful.

~ The hope of Spring... We're sitting in about 8 inches of snow & its going to get down to 0 degrees tonight, but the rumor is that its going to be nearing the 60's next week.  Please Lord, let it be so.

  1. That is cool about the wind chimes. It must be the latest trend in funeral arrangements. When we had Tim's brother's funeral in January, there were three sets of chimes, each decorated with a different floral accent and hanging on a stand so people could brush them lightly even at the funeral home. Such a beautiful idea.

  2. What thoughtful neighbors! Cuddle bug dogs are the best EVER. Last month, I got 500 extra fuel points & filled up my gas tank for under $10...and I only had 1/8th of a tank left!
    Thanks for hosting this!

  3. "please Lord let it be so" is how I feel about the 47 degrees in the 10 day forecast! Love it! I am so glad there wasnt a car coming when you slid down the driveway! scary! your neighbors are so sweet!!

  4. Those chimes are a great idea !

    I love it ! <3

  5. That run it looked very painful, had to be a hard hit to leave that mark! Poor guy....

    I bet you will be happy to see Spring, gosh I couldn't hang with that snow, ice etc.... Suppose to be 78 at the beach here tomorrow. Think warm thoughts???


  6. Our local grocery store has fuel points too, we love it! Dustin always uses that and I get gas at Sam's, which is cheaper too :)

  7. I saw the picture you posted on IG of you driving into your driveway yesterday - so glad you made it home safely!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  8. i'm thankful i'll be seeing my dad tomorrow and i'm praying he will remember me. i hate cancer. hate it.
    and YES to the kroger fuel points. i need to save that $

  9. I must say, that I want your neighbors! Not sure if these are the same ones who cleared the roads or sat out pumpkins (was it pumpkins?) last fall but they sound like incredible people!
